LEWIS CEMETERY

 

 

The Lewis family cemetery is located on the North side of US 175 between Cove Springs and Reese, Texas, about 8 miles Northwest of Jacksonville, Texas.  It is in a wooded area but has a driveway into it and is well maintained.  The earliest marked burial is that of J. R. Lewis in 1915.  According to the grandsons of J. R. Lewis, the cemetery was started about 1896 with the burials of several Lewis children at the base of the old cedar tree on the West end of the cemetery.  The names of the children were not recorded, but they remembered several other Lewises that were buried here between 1896 and 1915.  These are listed here as "known to be" KTB as there are no markers for them.  Thanks to Mr. Edward Gary Lewis and Mr. Hubert Lewis for this information. 

This survey was done Nov-1996 by Ira Gaylon White and updated November 21. 2016.
Tombstone photographs were done on July 10, 2007.
